Makeup Revolution New-Trals vs Neutrals Palette

Review and Swatches Makeup Revolution New-Trals vs Neutrals Palette


Hi, my name is Tanja and I'm an eyeshadow palette addict. I keep trying to tell myself that nobody needs an infinite amount of eyeshadow, but somehow I don't like to listen to the voice of reason inside my head. But seriously, it's not my fault that Makeup Revolution make such great products for so little money, right? To put it into tumblr speech: My brain said "You gotta." So a couple of months ago, I did not only order the Iconic Pro 1 palette, but also this beauty – the Newtrals vs. Neutrals palette.


This is just such a cool spin on all the samey-looking neutral eyeshadow palettes that the market is being overflooded with for a couple of years now. Urban Decay started the Naked craze, and every other brand seemed to follow suit soon after. So the Makeup Revolution Newtrals vs. Neutrals palette interprets the idea of neutral eyeshadow a bit differently: You have your beiges, light browns and mauve shades, but there's also a lot of orange and red hues in the top row.

I follow Makeup Revolution on instagram, so when they started posting about this palette back in Autumn it had my attention soon enough – so pretty! At first sight, you might think "unwearable" when looking at all these reddish shades. But consider this: Every time somebody calls a particular shade unwearable, I see it as a challenge. Turns out that red hues aren't that unwearable at all – and no, I'm not talking about red-rimmed eyes like Frank Iero of My Chemical Romance in the Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge era had.

Quality wise, this palette is a winner, very similar to the Iconic Pro 1 palette I have already reviewed. It's a great mixture of glittery, satin and matte eyeshadows – all nicely textured and blendable. Hooray! The cool thing is that without touching the red hues, you can still create a super neutral look without much trouble, there's enough other shades to choose from. And for when you want to mix it up a little, the top left corner of the palette is waiting for you.

My favourite shades of this palette are definitely Vogue and Trend for the top row, and Partial, Adapt and Suit for the bottom row. But in all honesty, they're all great shades. I'm super happy that Makeup Revolution decided to not include a matte black – I have enough of those in other palettes and I hardly ever use them. So I'm quite happy that you get a dark purple in the bottom right corner with Strong – much more up my alley!

The palette itself comes in sleek black casing with a huge mirror in the inside as all Makeup Revolution palettes do. There's also a double-ended brush included – obviously not the best brush I ever used, but definitely usable in case of emergency ;)
